If US campuses can’t protect free speech, they need new management

UC-Berkeley this week canceled an April 27 Ann Coulter speech, fearing riots. This lunacy will only grow until colleges start standing up decisively for free speech.

The school is trying to negotiate a new date, venue and ground rules with the group that invited her, but so far has failed.

Its worry is obvious: Masked, rock-throwing thugs prevented a February speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. And the area saw 20 arrests last weekend as extremists of left and right battled in the streets.

  • The federal government only needs to be in charge of a few things; defense of the country and ensuring the rights of its citizens should be at the top of the list. Let municipalities and states be responsible for their school systems – if they can’t or won’t protect our Constitutional Rights, then cut off their federal funding and sue them. They’ll come around.

    I don’t always agree with Anne Coulter but she is definately the wrong person to be playing progressive mind games against. they will lose and lose big time

    They should do as they did years ago in Little Rock…bring in the national Guard to keep order.
